Media Create: Dragon Quest VII 3DS Sells 872,922 Units on Debut
Sends Animal Crossing: New Leaf down to second place.
We already covered this week’s hardware sales in Japan, compiled by Media Create, and now the software sales results are currently out for this week via Gematsu.
Unsurprisingly, the list is dominated by Nintendo 3DS titles, but with its debut, Dragon Quest VII: Warriors of Eden managed to sell a massive 872,922 units on its debut.
This more or less dethrones the previous number 1, Animal Crossing: New Leaf which sold about 81,559 units for a combined total of 2,513,424 units across its lifetime. Fantasy Life is still in third with 13,342 units sold, while New Super Mario Bros. 2 inches ever closer to 2 million units sold with 11,685 units.
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate rounds off the list with 10,523 units sold. The Nintendo 3DS XL and 3DS are still selling like hot cakes on the hardware sales charts, but with Nintendo’s handheld dominating software sales, it’s an indication of what Japan is really buying into and playing these days.
